    One of the nicest hostels I’ve stayed in. Very friendly and helpful staff, extremely clean and comfortable space. Perfect for visiting San Jose, as a starting or stopping point before heading to the airport. Fairly quiet for a hostel.

    We only stayed there for a night while awaiting for our flight back home. We got a private room, was very clean, spacious, good facilities nice shared spaces, with free parking and a gated entrance. Walking distance to a few restaurants. Hostel is located in a suburban street so not much ambiance around. In the hostel, it was quiet and we didnt meet to many people since we were only there for a night. Definitely not a party hostel.

    Great stay (and I came back again for a couple more nights.) The wood bunkbeds are comfortable. I didn't play pool, but I did enjoy the lush garden/yard area. Very near to a friendly library.

    Great place to chill after a long trip. Comfy beds with curtain and locker. Slightly out the city but that’s not a bad thing. Cheap Uber to the centre but restaurants and supermarket within walking distance. Recommended

    As my first stop in Costa Rica, it was a welcome sight to have such a clean hostel with semi-private beds. It’s definitely not a party hostel, with everyone going to bed around 10pm but everyone was very friendly when I went. I recommend ear plugs for sleeping. Not the most convenient location but there are still a few restaurants within walking distance.
